Reasons to attend and to not attend DePaul University

To Attend

  • “It really gives you a broader perspective on people and the world.”
  • “The quarter system allows for a wider variety of knowledge. It broadens your education, which I love.”
  • “The teachers help you figure out what you want to do, and encourage you to excel in that field.”
  • “DePaul is in the city of Chicago. I like being in the city when I’m young because it’s more fast-paced.”
  • “The professors do a lot for you, at least in the Cybersecurity major. A lot of them do have full-time jobs outside of teaching, so they teach you what it’s like being in their field of work. They have more insights on what’s happening in the real world.”
  • “The class sizes and intimacy between students and professors. If you need one-on-one attention it’s available.” [The average class size is 24 students.]
  • “DePaul pushes you to have experiences in Chicago.”

To Not Attend

  • “It’s really cold in Chicago.”
  • “It’s Chicago so it can be sketchy at times. If you’re not prepared to deal with that and aren’t comfortable with confrontation, this is also probably not a good place to live.”
  • “If you’re looking to be involved in Greek life, I don’t think it’s very big here.”
  • “Living in the city is really expensive.”
  • “If you’re not super extroverted socially, it could be difficult to find your place from the start. But, there are a bunch of clubs that will help you find your social corner.”
  • “If you’re a pretty conservative person, I don’t know if you would like it. I’m not saying there isn’t a place for you at DePaul, but it can be a liberal echo-chamber sometimes which could get frustrating.” [See The DePaulia article, “Conservative speakers denied visit, event forced off campus.”]
